Making Gift SetsI bought two-ounce, food-quality bottles* that came with lids and shrink wrap sleeves, filled them with syrups, and made labels from a template I found via Pinterest. Ironically, the shrink wrap was commented on almost more than the actual syrups!
Future Syrup FlavorsI will be developing and sharing more syrups in the future. I already have marshmallow and sweet almond ones, and am considering praline next. Leave me a comment if you have suggestions for my next flavor project!*Since the time I ordered the bottles, they sold out on Amazon and are no longer available there.
